The 31-acre Valley Bend Wildlife Management Area (WMA) ranges across two wetlands on the Tygart Valley River. A 10-acre natural wetland and an eight-acre artifical wetland flood seasonally. Game traditionally hunted in the management area includes waterfowl and migratory birds, though hunting is limited as a result of the relatively small size of the area. Tygart Valley River accommodates fishing for trout, bass, and panfish. Camping is prohibited in the management area.
